Tutankhamun: How He Shaped a Century

Ancient Egypt is synonymous with gold, sex, art and death, an intoxicating combination, enduringly popular with book readers, documentary watchers and museum visitors alike.

On the 100-year anniversary of the discovery of the Valley of the Kings, join us for an illustrated talk by Dr Campbell Price, Curator of Ancient Egypt and Sudan at Manchester Museum, on the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. This will be followed by a conversation between Price and acclaimed author Christina Riggs about her new book, Treasured: How Tutankhamun Shaped a Century, which offers a new, bold history of the young pharaoh. Join us for a whistlestop tour through 100 years of history.
